PARTICIPANT AFTER DARK is a virtual performance, screening, and event space launched by PARTICIPANT INC in October 2020. The site will host artist projects commissioned specifically for the AFTER DARK web platform and remote viewing.

PARTICIPANT invited artist Glen Fogel to design and help develop AFTER DARK. Artists will work with Fogel ongoing through the Fall/Spring 2020-21 season, inhabiting the site and fully modifying it for their projects' specific needs. AFTER DARK is conceived of as a blank slate, removing as much institutional framework as possible. The site will only present current projects, and will often go ’dark’ in between events.
